Success: Best When Shared
As the 8th largest 100% employee-owned company in the U.S., [SEA1] Black & Veatch believes that success doesn’t count for much unless it’s shared…that when the company does well, our professionals should do well, too. Employee-ownership at Black & Veatch typically starts in a professional's first year with the company. Ownership accounts can grow every year depending on financial results, potentially providing a significant source of long-term wealth; plans are provided at no cost to employee-owners around the globe.
Ask any of our professionals what they love about being an employee-owner, and you’ll hear some powerful language. They’ll use words like Accountability. Stewardship. Purpose, and Pride.
And that’s exactly what we want…employee-owners who are happy, healthy, engaged with the work they do, and committed to the mission upon which the company was founded: building a world of difference.
Owning Our Shared Values
We believe employee ownership helps align our professionals’ personal financial interests with those of the company. But we also believe there’s something more…a benefit beyond just the financial.
As employee-owners, we embrace the totality of ownership through our stance on issues as diverse as worksite safety, inclusion, and respect for the value of every professional’s contribution. We believe in a shared responsibility…not just for growing the company financially, but for radiating our core values throughout the industries and communities we serve.

“As an employee-owner, I find that ownership to me means that how I spend my time matters, that how I show up with my team matters, that how I care for myself even, it matters.”
“Your success is my success; my success is your success. I think our clients benefit from this, our company benefits from this, and ultimately, I benefit from this.”
“It means knowing that all my coworkers are going to give their best, because we all want to give quality products to our clients, because we work in our own company, we are the owner of the company, the money we save becomes the money in our own pocket.“
“There have been over 400 people to date, that have contributed to this project and helped in making it a success. That teamwork is something that we all get to share in as employee-owners here at Black & Veatch.”
We are the owners of the company. The money we save will become the money in our own pockets. Every dollar matters.
